Starve Your Doubts

“For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith”

1 John 5:4

Ponder This

Are you uncertain about some things? Are you walking on eggshells and Jell-O theologically? Don’t do it! Get a bulldog grip on the truth and stand by it. Learn to feed your faith and starve your doubts.

If you don’t consistently, regularly, join with fellow believers to experience worship and the teaching of the Word, daily reading your Bible and praying, then you have no shield of faith! Sometimes at the university, college students who aren’t deeply grounded in the Word will let some ungodly, unbelieving professor make fun of their faith. They’ll fall apart like a house of cards. That’s because they don’t have a strong, rock-ribbed faith in God.

Faith will be like a shield to you to protect you: “Above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one” (Ephesians 6:16). Faith will give you certainty. Feed your faith. How do you do that? “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God” (Romans 10:17).

Practice This

You must actively, consciously clothe yourself in the armor of God. How much are you dedicating yourself to being in His Word, learning how to wield your Sword?
